Mannford man accused in friend's shooting death

MANNFORD, Okla. (AP) — Police say a Mannford man has been arrested after authorities discovered the body of his friend in the woods in Pawnee County.

Police Chief Lucky Miller says a woman came to the police department Tuesday night and said she believed her husband had killed someone. Steve Dobbins II was arrested on a complaint of first-degree murder and booked in the Creek County jail.

Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.

He's accused in the death of Travis Pruit, whose body was found Wednesday morning.

Police say Dobbins and Pruit were close friends. The police chief says investigators do not yet know what led to the shooting.
